Alanna joined the team at Trade Winds Dental in 2008. She is
the office administrator, front desk goddess, and your patient care
specialist. Alanna enjoys meeting, greeting and working with the
awesome patients at Trade Winds Dental. She also loves the incredibly
supportive and encouraging team here at the office. Alanna came to love
the dental field through a major reconstruction of her own jaws and teeth.
The result was truly life changing. She learned firsthand what a huge
impact a person's smile can have on his/her overall self-image and confidence.
Because of this experience, "I am very happy to have the opportunity to be a
part of helping patients experience the difference high quality dentistry can
make in their lives." Alanna currently lives in Jarrell, Texas with her two
sons - Spencer and Cooper, twin daughters - Tressie and Tegan,
and her mother who delivers blessings to the family every day. Alanna
enjoys being involved with her church, gardening, spending time
with their many animals - horses, dogs, cats, and rabbits, and laying
poolside with a good book. She also recently constructed and
renovated her home. "I love to wander through an old hardware store
or antique store - it helps me breathe deeper!"

different zoos and nature parks, and training for the LiveStrong Marathon in
